READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by quotFoodThe Way To

We just returned from Alaska and we were fortunate enough to take a float plane to the Taku Glacier Lodge in Juneau. Salmon is grilled over an open alderwood fire and basted with this recipe. Check out my other recipes from the Taku Glacier Lodge. Here is the link for the float plane trip to the Taku Glacier Lodge: www.wingsairways.com

I was told this was King Salmon in 1995. It was truly succulent and the best salmon I have ever had.
